November 12 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm$35
Ayurvedic oils not only rejuvenates your mind and body but it also acts as a powerful recharger. Ayurvedic Self-massage offers various benefits for example nourishes dry skin and enhances concentration, pacifies doshas, relieves fatigue, enhance stamina, improves blood circulation, calms nerves, lubricates joints to name a few.
Ayurvedic self-massage or Abhyanga is a natural form of exercise that balances body and mind. But, before performing Abhyanga, we should consider our ‘Prakriti’ (constitution) and ‘Vikriti’ (current condition) and our external environment. Knowing our Prakriti (constitution) and Vikriti (current condition) also helps us in deciding which oils are best for us and how often should we use.
Ayurveda believes that human bodies are made up of five elements viz. air, water, fire, earth and ether; and these elements are represented in our bodies by three ‘bio-energies’ or three ‘doshas’ viz. Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Selecting Ayurvedic Oils for Abhyanga, consider your ‘dosha’ type or your Vikriti (current condition).
In this workshop Anjana will go through your unique body constitution and learn about therapeutic and medicinal benefits of Ayurvedic Oils best for your body type.
